A Party….

Ever gone to a concert and feel like your at a party? I heard it mentioned once that the concert is a party and the band is just the host of the party.  In a way it makes sense; if the crowd isn’t having fun at the concert then the band isn’t going to make money so they should put a good show on.

Think of it, if you had to go to a party and you knew you were going to be bored, you would find a way to get out of it. But if you are going to a party where you are going to have friends and fun there, you want to go. You might even take the next day off of work due to the amount you have taken in the night before.

If you think about it for a moment, how often do you enjoy going to a party at a church? Not as much as going to a rock concert and seeing the band and being there enjoying the noise and craziness.

This is what worries me about some of the music that is out there. While there are bands that have fun, there are those that chose to use music for spreading hate and anger. Those who are trying to have fun the music can do things like Tommy Lee does in some of the Motley Crue videos, where the drum set comes out of the stage and will do a full roll while he plays! (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6nm1BJPe-pg ) There are the ones where Jon Bon Jovi uses a harness to fly over to the crowd to a separate stage part.(https://youtu.be/lDK9QqIzhwk )

He nicknamed the move as being ‘Captain Kidd’. Those you can see that he and the band were having fun.

With all the hate that is out there, shouldn’t we have a safe to place have fun? Do we have to have the anger and shootings all the time?

In the last month there have been there are more than 9 pages on the site I saw. http://www.gunviolencearchive.org/reports/mass-shooting



Why is History important?

Why is history important to us? What can we learn from the past? What is repeating itself? Why aren’t we able to see this? These are questions that we need to find the answers to or we are going to be in a big problem and fast. We need to take the blinders off or we are going to find ourselves in trouble.

Some of the information people might think I am way out in left field and others will see a person with insight. I only ask that you look at the information and make your own decisions.

The first question that I asked is why is history important to us? The reason that I have found is that history has a tendency to repeat itself. If you look in the past you can see that we have been in bad places before and we will be again. The thing is how bad does it have to get before we see what is going on. The first example that I can think of is December 7, 1941. Pearl Harbor was bombed by the Japanese.

Most people think that Pearl Harbor was a surprise attack, just like they think that 9/11 was a surprise attack. Here are some pieces information that you might find interesting. The first pieces of information will be about Pearl Harbor.

Pearl Harbor, there was information that the Japanese were up to something. The Japanese had been on a mission of conquest since the invasion of Manchuria in September of 1931. (http://www.historylearningsite.co.uk/world-war-two/causes-of-ww2/manchuria-1931/ ) They had sent an Ambassador to the US when we stopped sending oil and steel to them. They had put their fleet to sea and had them going to where it would be avoiding the main part of the American Navy. {see picture below}slide_6 They had sent messages to the Ambassador to deliver a final part to a 14 part communication on the 7th of December but there is no clear declaration of war with the United States at 2:20 pm EST. This was after the attack had happened.

Now if you look at the 9/11 you see that there were several things that were wrong during the attacks. One of the most common that people don’t think about is the fact that if President Bush had taken a briefing on the August 6th 2001, then he would have gotten a briefing stating that “Bin Laden Determine To Strike In US” (http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/11/opinion/the-bush-white-house-was-deaf-to-9-11-warnings.html?_r=0 ) and he would have had a chance to get the government up and running in an alert status.

What can we learn from this? That not everything we are told is always true with the basic media without asking questions. The reason that people don’t like to ask on what is considered a sensitive topic because they are scared of hurting others feelings. The fact is that we need to ask questions of the government to make sure they are telling the truth. We need to be able to check on what they say.

What does it mean when I say that it is repeating itself? The US has been in an the mindset of ‘Isolationism‘ is the best for the country in the past. We were that way in the beginning of the 1910’s and 1940’s {prior to Pearl Harbor} and we have a person who wants to ‘build a wall‘ to keep people out of the country. Now how does this help the country? It doesn’t. If we are working to make the country better and the world better then how would a wall be helping?

Why are we scared to ask questions? We have been told that asking the Government questions is not ‘patriotic‘. Asking questions means we are a conspiracy person and that we are trying to find something wrong to say that the government is wrong on everything.

Here is the question for you… why can’t you safely ask questions to the government without having people look you at like you are totally nuts? Why is it that we are told that the information is correct and to just accept it? There is something called the Freedom of Information Act and that we can ask for information from the government. 

We have something that the government doesn’t like us to use and that is called ‘Political Will’. Political Will means that we can change the people who are in the office. We need to use it and put people in office that will do what we want them to and not what people with large amounts of money want.

Nature’s First Green … Is Gold

‘Nothing Gold Can Stay
Robert Frost, 1874 – 1963

Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.’ (https://www.poets.org/poetsorg/poem/nothing-gold-can-stay )

What does this mean to you? To me it means one thing, that the kids who are young and impressionable are only for a while, then things change. When you look at a small child they don’t know what hate is, they don’t know what racism is, they are so pure then they get all the outside information and that purity gets lost.

I have seen what it is and how it happens. The kids are the future and they are being corrupted by things that are not being told or are being forced to hear and they aren’t being told that it is OK to ask questions. My visions are scary at time. I am not a prophet, I am a person who sees things in a different way.

I have heard young people (under the age of 25) who say that WWII and the Holocaust never happened. I have seen the damage that was done, walked in the cities of Germany, touched the bullet holes of combat and to say that it never happened or that it is nothing more than a slander campaign is sickening to me! 062 The thought of this happening again and who will it be this time. Why do people feel that it is OK to deny the death of so many people? In WWII alone there was 11 Million people that were not only Jews (6 million with 1.1 Million being kids) but also Jehovah’s Witnesses, homosexuals, disabled people, and Roma people. (https://www.dosomething.org/facts/11-facts-about-holocaust )

So here is my question to you on this subject, 1.1 million kids, what did they do wrong to go to places like the ones listed on this statue. Not all the people of the time in Germany were this way. There were people who did fight against the hell that was happening, people like Major General Henning von Tresckow, Field Marshal Erwin Rommel, one of Germany’s most prestigious commanders wanted it to end as well.

 So some people can see the purity of life and want to preserve it, do you want to?


A Painful Topic but One That Needs Attention

This post is not meant to cause pain for the victims of 11 September 2001, I am trying to get questions about it out. To those who lost loved ones, I am trying to show that I have never forgotten or forgiven the people that could have prevented your loss.

I have always been a person who questions things. When the towers in New York City came down, my heart was broken for the loss of so many people. I got frustrated when the news channels showed President George W. Bush sitting in a classroom listening to a reading lesson. When he was told that the first tower had been hit, he should have been out of the class and getting his ass to the closest base and taken care of the security of this country.

When he was getting interviewed later on it, President Bush said that he had seen the first plane hit on a TV outside of the class. Here’s question number 1: the footage of the first plane hitting wasn’t shown until after the towers had come down, so how did he ‘watch’ the first plane hit on the TV?

When the planes went off course and the tracking information was turned off, where was the military at? Why didn’t they deploy planes to find them and put the country on alert? I was in the Army there are several things that you have to do in this type of attack!

I have heard that the Navy was doing a training session and had planes in the air and area. I don’t know if it’s true or not but I feel like the ball got dropped. 

When any incoming President starts the transition into office, they are given briefings on the major issues in the country. Ms. Rice said that the title of the security briefings on the terrorism threats was too vague but when asked what it was titled she said it was something to the effect of ‘Bin Lauden plans attack on the US’.How is that vague? 

After the attack happened, all the planes were grounded but the US government pays for members of the ‘Bin Lauden’ family to fly out of the country without being questioned. If you have going to get any good information on someone who has broken the law, you need to talk to the family. 

Has anyone tried to get a full copy of the ‘Patriot Act’ and really read it? Most of the people in Congress never read it, most of them were like us and running on fear. Has anyone noticed that the ‘terror threat’ has never been back down to a safe color. 

I am still in love with this country but the problem we now have is one that is not going away any time soon. When we lose so many people then we need to know the truth. 

When I hear people talking about the email server that New. Clinton used is a reason to not vote for her, yet the people that are saying this found ways to not go to active duty military and has had their companies file for bankruptcy on three times… Who is the better choice?

Building an Empire…

Ever noticed how some companies want to build empires and in the process walk on the people that they have working for them? What about the countries that do this? Some people do that too and it is heart breaking for me. When is enough money enough? When is enough property enough? What would they do with paper money if it was worthless?

We have seen people with too much power and the damage that it can do. We have seen when countries do this, the damage done and still we don’t learn. So let’s look a bit deeper at the problem.

If you want to build an empire, make sure that you look at who is being affected by it. If you look at Europe at the end of 19th century, most of the major countries were all related. The Royal Family in England had family members on the thrones of, Great Britain, Russia, Germany, as well as influence on several other countries. (http://www.englishmonarchs.co.uk/saxe_coburg_gotha_2.htm )

If a person wants to build a personal empire they need to look at who they are hurting in the process as well. Take a person who is looking for personal wealth and not caring about who they hurt and you end up with a person behaving this way. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1XHcPYorSJw The other end of the spectrum is that you have someone who behaves like ‘The Gates’ and put their funds to good use. www.gatesfoundation.org/

What would happen if money was worthless? Could you make something with your hands to trade for food? Could you do an honest day’s hard work to get a meal? There is a benefit from it. You know that the person you help is going to be happy that you did and at the same time you get something in return, exercise!




Why don’t people help…

Why don’t people help those in need? Why is it that those who suffer are looked on as if they are less than human? We don’t need to be this way, do we? Does the major religions of the world say that those in need are there because they want to be? I don’t understand anymore.

I see it all the time, my heart goes out to the people who are homeless and standing by the side of the road trying to get money to feed a family. I have seen the Veterans that are too proud to do that and they hope that someone will see them for what they are, where to they end up? Some have ended up in the hospital due to the fact that they collapse from hunger.

I get reminded of it every week when I have to choose between food and paying the bills and hating it when the phone rings and it is a bill collector. They don’t want to understand or care to that I am trying my best to pay the bills and feed my husband. I stay off Facebook due to the fact that there is too much drama for me on it.

I see people who have lots of money driving around acting like they are better than those who don’t have funds but they are the same people that want the tax breaks due to the fact that they feel the income tax is too high.

I would love to see some of the better off people having to live a year in my shoes. A year with no credit cards, no car to drive, trying to find a job, trying to make it when no one is willing to help and then run for an elected office. If it was a higher office (Governor, Federal Senator, or President) they should have to do at least two years in the position of the lower income to truly understand us.

There is something that I call ‘Dark Money’ that is in the play and that we need to have some accountability for it. This country should not have a ‘class’ distinction between those who are with money and those who are in need. The fact that this is all connected is important.

There are a few songs that need to be listened to in order to understand what I am talking about. The links are below. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CNdOsL4Xe7Q  this one is called ‘Revolution Calling’.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qIVWKlUvvBU this one is called ‘Dark Money’. There is one other that people need to hear and it is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-tJYN-eG1zk This is Queen’s ‘We Will Rock You’ and we can rock the system easily and that is through our political voice. The power of the vote is one of the strongest that we have.

Very Confused…

I have been very confused as of late and today has been the worst of it. As a military veteran, I understand the way the government works and so something’s being slow is nothing new for me.

What has me confused and bugging the daylights out of me is if a person is disabled and there is proof that they have lost many jobs due to the at problem is it wrong for them to say, ‘I gave it an honest shot and it isn’t getting any better. I need help with money from the government to make it.’ In my eyes I don’t see that as being wrong. If the person has made an honest effort and tried to make it in the world and aren’t able to do it due to a condition then they should be able to get help.

I got a letter from SSDI saying that I am not disabled enough to get assistance from the government for the fact that I am going blind. I found out that I don’t qualify for the services for those who have severe vision impairments due to the fact my vision is good in the other eye.

I have tried everything that I can think of trying to raise money and keep applying to jobs and getting the same message back “Thank you for your interest however we have decided to go with someone who is more qualified.” I have the Esty site where I am trying to sell things that I make, (https://www.etsy.com/shop/FromByLisaAnderson ), I have cut as many corners as I can and I am waiting for the VA to let me know if my rating will go up or if I will get the pension that I am trying for. I have a request on gofundme trying to get money and no one seems to want to help.(https://www.gofundme.com/2o5pvw4 )

Is there something that I am doing wrong? Can someone please advise me on what to do?

Nature’s Way to Feel Better

Mother nature has given us so much that those who don’t look at what is in her herb garden to cure us need to ask the brain cells to come back.

How many people remember seeing their Grandmother drink a glass of tea after dinner? How many remember what the foods were that she made? I remember my Grandmother having been in a car accident before I was born and every time we were over for dinner and we were going to have regular corn she wanted it to be the freshest possible. My Grandfather had been in the same accident but still had a garden and would get the corn and that was the way it was. If we were having mashed potatoes the skins were taken off but the potatoes had to be mashed by hand.

The apartment that I live in now (this is a true story) has a lot of Hispanic people in it. About 6 months ago I was making split pea and ham soup in a crock pot and the maintenance person came up and told my husband that the house smelled like crap. We have two cats and the box had been cleaned earlier so it was the fact that he came in the kitchen when I was stirring it and chose then to say what he did — not the smartest, (this is the funny part coming up) three days later I was making meat for taco salads and he tried to find out what time dinner was. Same person that had insulted me, wanted to know when dinner was.

Now I am the person that can’t stand seasoning packets. When I make taco meat about half my kitchen looks like a hurricane hit it. I spend the time to dice the onions, garlic, get the freshest ingredients possible and there is almost 0 (none- nada- zip) salt in the foods. I will slow cook even on the stove to make sure that the foods are healthy and taste good too.  So for me making taco meat it is a mess.  There is the leanest ground beef that I can get, onion, garlic, cilantro, stewed tomatoes with diced green chilli’s in it, salsa for the liquid, fresh ground pepper and a bit of lime juice to give it a tartness that seems to say ‘Hi there’. Slow cook it in a large frying pan and the house smells wonderful.{My kitchen usually suffers for it but that is why my husband gets the dish pan hands – I cook he cleans it up after he eats it}.

How many of us have had peppermint candy at a restaurant? The little starlight mints? There is more than one reason that the restaurants will give them out. Yes they freshen your breath but if the place has gotten the right type there is a bit of peppermint oil in them too. That is what you want. The oil has several healing things going for it. The candy is the easiest way to get it in to you.

Peppermint has a natural nerve tonic in it. If you go to Google and search how to make your own peppermint oil you will find it can be used for everything from a muscle rub to giving it to a pet with a bad stomach, to your bath water, to teas. The peppermint oil that is in the leaves (you can use tea bags for this too) and warm olive or canola oil sitting in the windowsill will cause the nerve tonic to release. A little goes a long way and trust me it smells much better than  Ben – Gay.

Why do we suffer…

Why do we suffer in emotional pain from time to time? Why do we go through hard times? Why are we forced to face our fears? Deal with the loss of others? What kind of person would do this to someone?

Over the years, I have had several ‘challenging’ times in my life and it took a while for me to understand that it was a test. The difference between the computer I am typing on and myself is choice. I can choose to come on and put information out or I can hide away and no one would know that I am hurting.

There is an old saying that I remember from long ago. ‘Fool me once, shame on you … fool me twice, shame on me.’ Now it might not make sense to you right now but I can explain in a moment.

If you are in a loving relationship, then you are lucky. If your relationship is one of bruises and being silent on what is going on, that is not one that you need. Being in love is a two way street: you have to give to get.

I have had people tell me that the reason I have had so many challenges in my life is I don’t have enough faith. Why would I want to believe in something that I was told when my suffering was at one of the worst, I was told it was ‘God’s Will’ that I suffer.

The people who say things like that don’t understand what they are saying. I have chosen to walk a different path and go where the others fear. While my fear is strong, I can win by facing it and letting it pass.

I look at what I see with the eyes of a strange person. Where others see pain and hatred, I look for deeper reasons. I set my mind in motion by will alone and I can go deeper into a problem than is comfortable for most.

One of the things that always gets me to laugh is when the people want to come over and talk about religion. They all get the same warning: If you want to talk about it, be willing to see and hear the information that I bring up or don’t ask. Very few want to hear it.

The oldest known form of belief in one god isn’t the Jewish Religion, it is Ancient Egyptian. You might not recognize the pharaoh’s name but you will know his son quite well. The Pharaoh was Akhenaten and his son was Tutenchamun. This was before the time of Ramses the Great. (hmmm the Christian religion says otherwise)

The parting of the Red Sea is a mis translation. In Hebrew it isn’t Red Sea, but the Reed Sea ( ים סוף). If you think about it a reed sea is a marsh land. That makes the Exodus much more real.

When was the bible books were chosen? In 325 AD at the Council of Nicaea. That is when the books that are in the modern bible were chosen under the Roman Emperor Constantine. (
